Fatdog64-800 Alpha was released 16 November 2018.
The Fatdog64 team is pleased to announce the debut of the next generation Fatdog64 GNU/Linux system.
The base of Fatdog64-800 is LFS 8.2 (Linux From Scratch) with CLFS 2017.17, and packages updated to the later or latest BLFS.
The alpha repository comprises over 1700 packages and many more will be added by the official full release.
Fatdog64 is a new major version line and does not upgrade from any of older versions. Save file/folders from older versions aren't compatible. Start a fresh save file/folder. A few older packages may still work, but in general they aren't supported and you should upgrade to the new package version. The same applies for SFS archives.
In spite of the Alpha label, the quality of this release is probably closer to Beta. The developers have been using this version in their daily work for several months before this release.
Please report all bugs to the forum support thread.
